Max-Planck-Institut für Softwaresysteme: Sustaining innovation by enabling powerful, dependable and safe software systems

Computer systems permeate every as­­pect of human endeavor and support the operation of our financial, medical, educational and administrative institutions; they facilitate science, manufactur­­ing, trans­­portation, and trade, and they en­­able new forms of entertainment and social exchange. However, our ability to transform computing innovations into prac­­tical use is limited by our ability to design and implement increasingly pow­­erful, complex software systems that are dependable and ensure the safety and privacy of their use.

The Max Planck Institute for Software Systems is chartered to conduct world-class basic research in all areas related to the design, analysis, modeling, implementation and evaluation of complex soft­­ware systems. Particular areas of interest include programming systems, distributed and networked systems, embedded and autonomous systems, as well as cross­­cutting aspects like formal model­­ing and analysis of software systems, privacy, security, and dependability.
